As I pointed out, U.S. calendars label the first day of the week with the word Sunday.

Yes. What is your point?
You agreed with what I say that in a seven-day week, the seventh day is the last day and is the Sabbath. Then, it goes back again to the first day of the week.

So, U.S. calendars label the first day of the week with the word Sunday, and its seventh day as Saturday.

I say that the first day of the week should be Monday and its seventh day as Sunday. So you want to know when the resurrection took place. Pages 177-178 of Pasiong Mahal, a book that is chanted in the Philippines during Holy Week and recommended by the spirit of Ama, answers this.

re: "You agreed with what I say that in a seven-day week, the seventh day is the last day and is the Sabbath. Then, it goes back again to the first day of the week."

Yes.



re: " So, U.S. calendars label the first day of the week with the word Sunday, and its seventh day as Saturday."

Yes.



re: "I say that the first day of the week should be Monday and its seventh day as Sunday."

And once again, what difference does it make what you label the seventh day or the first day? A name doesn't change the fact that the seventh day and the first day are still the seventh day and the first day.




re: "So you want to know when the resurrection took place."

No, not for the purpose of this topic. What have I said that makes you think that I want to know when the resurrection took place?


BTW, you say in your post #88 that Wednesday to Sunday is three days." Actually, that would be five days.

Saturday is the Sabbath, can Sunday be a Sabbath?


Yes.


Like I said, I studied it, I don't remember all of it but it isn't something I am interested in anymore, it's one of those debates I usually don't take part in.

Change the calendar in the United States of America, similar to the calendars in Europe. Label them correctly. Lump together the weekends instead of now being split into two. Then, we can have a true weekend.

That's an issue for a different topic.

And you still have a couple of questions directed to you in post #92.

ouple of questions directed to you in post #92.
Please repeat your question. My stand is Jesus was crucified on August 17, 1 BC, a Thursday, and resurrected on Monday, the first day of the week. The spirit of Ama said that Jesus was crucified on August 17. I have proved it that is why I believed and have spoken (2 Corinthians 4:13).

Default The mental gymnastics used to get a Friday death and Sunday resurrection to be equal to 3 Days/3 Nights.

How would the answer to these questions matter at all to the significance of the event?

I completely concur. What is up with all the questions about things that would not change our hearts? Curiosity I reckon. It's a free forum and I'm fine with the discussion of whatever. But I prefer topics that can change us into the image of Christ.
